Nestled under the spectacular peaks of the Northern Rockies in Montana — as iconic a representation of America's "purple mountain majesties" as one can find — lies one of the country's worst cases of community poisoning from industrial pollution. In the small town of Libby, many hundreds of people are sick or have already died from exposure to asbestos, a notorious industrial toxin that many Americans would consider long banned or under control. "Libby, Montana," airing on PBS's P.O.V. series on August 28, 2007, takes a working day's journey into a blue-collar community and finds a different reality — one where the American Dream exacts a terrible price.
